Pup Treats: Homemade Chicken Liver Brownies For Your Pups!

Hello friends! I’m excited to share this wonderful homemade dog treat recipe with you today! I’ve been making this one for years and my dogs always love them. They’re super easy to make and all natural!

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been in the store buying dog treats and the treats that I want to buy include ingredients I don’t want to feed my dog. Not only that, they are expensive. This recipe is a great alternative to buying store treats and it’s quite versatile. They’re cheap to make and you can switch up the ingredients if you’d like by using beef liver or even peanut butter.

Homemade Chicken Liver Brownies

Ingredients:

  • Roughly 5 cups of oat flour
  • 1 Container of Chicken Livers – about 2 1/2 cups
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • Roughly 1/4 cup cheese (Parmesan or Mozzarella, whatever you have on hand)
  • 2 TB Olive Oil


Making oat flour is easy. All you do is use your processor or you can even use your Vitamix which would make a finer flour. I suppose you could use regular wheat flour as well if it’s what you have on hand.

Directions:

Add in roughly 5 cups of oats to your processor.

Turn on the processor and process until it’s a flour like consistency. I leave mine a little course. This only takes a minute.

Remove the flour and place it in a bowl. Now we do the same thing with the livers.

         Just dump them in and turn on the processor until the livers are like a liquid.

Now we just add everything else in, including the flour and oil, in with the livers. Add the egg shells too. I usually add in another 1/2 cup of oats as well. You don’t have to though.

Process these for just a few minutes until fairly smooth. As you can see, I’m quite messy and that’s okay. This doesn’t need to be perfect.

Grease a glass pan with any oil you prefer. My pan is a 11×15 or so which will result in a perfect brownie thickness. Using a 9×13 will work, but you’ll have to cook a little longer to be sure the inside is no longer pink.

Pour in your brownie mixture and smooth it out.

Bake it at 350 degrees for roughly 20 minutes.

I used convect bake at 375 degrees for roughly 25 minutes. You really just want the liver to cook until light brown. Believe it or not, the house smells good and your pups will know exactly what you’re doing from the start!

 Let them cool for about 10 minutes.

Begin slicing a grid… Again, it doesn’t need to be perfect.

Place them out to cool completely before storing. After completely cooling, I like to store mine in glass jars in the fridge for up to a week or so.

They’re ready to serve!

  1. Oooohhh… I can’t wait to make these!!! My dog, Skipper, will eat anything, so I know he’ll love these treats. Thank you! 😀 I’m also thinking these would make great Christmas gifts for my doggie neighbors. If a dog has a sensitive system, though, do you think these would be okay?

    1. Hi Bonnie! I bet your dog would love them! I’m not sure about the sensitive system, but Cynder has allergies to dyes and other additives, but does fine with these. You could omit the cheese as dairy is controversial for dogs, but mine have never had an issue. It’s worth a try, but these have to be stored in the fridge. I have a peanut butter recipe that stores in jars on the counter which would be better as a gift. Will be doing that one very soon. Let me know your thoughts on that… ♡

    1. Wow, thanks so much! This recipe originally contained garlic powder, but because it’s controversial, I omitted it. Would love to hear your thoughts on it. My dogs haven’t had an issue.

      Will check out the link! I appreciate it and thanks for the reblog. 💖
